    This is a really solid 65. It has no rust and never has had any. I have owned the car for about two years and I have made extensive upgrades. Upgrades include, NOS eight lug brake drums and brake shoes. All new light bulbs including dash lights. New antenna and AM/FM radio repair. New gas tank, new mufflers, new steering gear box. All new bushings and lower ball joints in the A arms. New tires, less than 50 miles. New springs, front and rear. New shocks, with air shocks on the rear. New fan clutch, radiator boiled out. Carburetors professionally rebuilt. Extensive wiring repairs and vacuum repairs. Rebuilt heater and dash controls. New convertible top tonneau. Pertronics electronic ignition system and tune up parts. The car is loaded with everything except AC. I have researched the vin and found that the car was born with a 389 four barrel, with 3 speed manual transmission in the floor. The original color was white with a black interior. Sometime in it's life, it was converted to a 421/375 hp. four speed car. The engine is a period correct 1965 421. Cylinder compression is 125 lbs. on all eight cylinders. All the 421 emblems are perfectly placed. Tach, vacuum gauge, and even the clock work. It rides and shifts really well. This car is a really big hit at car shows, and you can drive it anywhere. The white interior is very nice, the top is good, but not perfect. The paint is very nice, but not perfect. I have too many cars now and something has to go. I have really enjoyed driving and working on this car, it does turn heads!

  2. I remember watching My Three Sons in the mid 60's. There were episodes were Robbie was driving a GTO convertible. Was not a commercial, but Pontiac was definitely advertising the cars. I'm sure the episodes are on YouTube, I didn't have time to watch them and show a video. Must have been around 1965.
  3. Glad you guys like the car. Before I bought it I researched the serial number carefully. The car was born with a 389 four barrel with a three speed in the floor. Apparently that was pretty common back then. I once had a GTO, 1966 with a three speed in the floor. It was factory that way. Sometime in the Bonneville history, somebody found the 421 HO engine. It is dated 1965. Probably from a Catalina 2+2. They mounted the emblems perfectly and converted it to a four speed. It has also had a color change. It was originally white. So I guess you could call it a clone. Best I can tell everything el
  4. Thanks, it really does turn heads. Wow, where to start. Fuel tank, filter and fuel pump. Rebuilt the tri power. Rebuilt brakes with new NOS eight lug drums. Rebuilt the wiring, new dash lights, headlights and taillight bulbs. Rebuilt the AM/FM radio. New springs front and rear. New shocks with rear air shocks. New steering gear box. All new front end suspension parts. New tires. New convertible boot. Vacuum leak repairs. Rebuilt the retractable trunk light. Fixed the turn signal canceling cam. That's a good start anyway. There is more I'm sure.
  5. Greetings, I am from Priceville, Alabama. I have a 1965 Bonneville convertible. I bought it last year and started a major restoration on the car. Getting close to finished. I want it to be a driver, not a trailer queen. The car gets a lot of attention at shows. People really seem to enjoy it. There are more pictures in my profile, "about me"
